Many have opined that actress Namitha’s oomph factor has contributed to the success of her recent films.
But the actress begs to differ. “I really want to change my image now. I want to act in roles which are more meaningful,” says Namitha, who was in the city, shooting for a song sequence. “I am not sure if I will able to get rid of the image of being branded as a sexy actress,” says Namitha, who claims that she is bored of being seen in skimpy outfits.
“I want to take up different roles, where I don’t have to be repetitive,” she adds.
The actress states that she has acted in films where she portrayed a serious character, “A few movies in which I have played serious roles were well-accepted. But most directors insist I wear a bikini and shorts,”
Namitha discloses, adding, “I would like to wear traditional outfits. I want to act in roles like Sridevi in the film Moondram Pirai. When I see my co-stars bagging the best roles, it disturbs me to some extent. But producers and directors insist that most of my fans prefer me in a glamorous role.”
